Today's flavour : Forest Fruits

Tastes like : Most of the dark coloured Robinson's cordials. No matter what they say (Apple and Blackcurrant, summer fruits, Forest fruit, berry mix, etc) they all taste exactly the same. Thankfully, these Bolero's have been much more varied.

I remember eating a dragon fruit many, many years ago. I can't remember if I liked it or not. The fact that I can't remember probably means that it was meh.

Today's flavour : White Grape

Unsurprisingly, it tastes like white grape. .. Bit bland..

Today's flavour : Kola, with a K.

I'm allergic to "Cola", but I can happily munch on Kola Kubes..
If I go silent over the next week or so, assume this didn't go well.

Incidentally, it tastes of curry, so.. um.. not sure what's going on there.

Tingling tongue.. In a really weird way. That's not normal... Maybe it's psychosomatic? .. Not chancing it..

Today's flavour : Elderflower

Much nicer flavour, and much less deadly!

Today's flavour : Hibiscus

Tastes quite subtle, but with a nice aftertaste that seems to last a while. I'd compare it to a Parma-Violet kinda flowery taste.

Today's flavour : Guavabana

.. that doesn't even sound like a real fruit..
Tastes alright, though. A light fruity taste, a bit like a super-diluted lime flavour drink.

That's got to be a cross/mixture of guava and a banana?

Sounds OK.

Today's flavour : Lemon

There's a lot of variety in the world of lemon flavours, but this one is closest to ... Lemsip..
I'm essentially drinking a 1.5ltr bottle of Lemsip...
...
Hmmm..

I presume that;s based on Honeydew Melon? If so - Yum!!!

Lemon drinks always make my teeth feel funny; I love lemon flavoured foods, but not drinks - except lemonade. As for Lemsip - Bleurghhhh!

We've another new addition to the Top Ten, today!

Today's flavour : Pineapple

As seems to be a common occurrence with the drinks, this is more of a Pineapple Cubes taste than a Fresh Pineapple Juice taste.
But it's lovely, so it's going in the list!!

List So Far : Ginger, Red Grape, Peach Iced Tea, Watermelon, Red Orange, Honey Melon, Pineapple

One of my mum's favourite "James' Childhood" stories is that, one day whilst pushing me in my little baby buggy, she bought some tomatoes and sat them in the buggy next to me. By the time she'd got home, I'd eaten half of them..
Long story short.. I LOVE tomatoes!!

Today's flavour : Tomato!

... is absolutely abhorrent, and went straight down the drain.
Bleurgh!!!


Today's second flavour : Strawberry and Banana

Lovely. Tastes a whole lot like Juicy Fruit Gum. Mystery solved!

Today's flavour : Acai Berry

Tastes alright, but it's one of those "Not a fruit" berries that have a weird aftertaste.

Today's flavour : Tamarind

Another of those "do I like this..?" flavours. Kinda sweet, but also kinda sour.
Not sure.

Today's flavour : Yellow Grapefruit

I'm quite a fan of grapefruit, so this isn't as bad for me as it might be for others!
Tangy, sour, kick at the back of your throat.
It's all there.
Mmmm!

Today's flavour : Mango

A simple enough flavour. Can't really go wrong with Mango.
Out of the two main Rubicon flavours I always preferred Mango to Passion Fruit, but oddly when they're not sparkling, as is the case here, I think I prefer Passion Fruit. .. More Um Bongo'y!

Today's flavour : Almond

I've been putting this one off. "Nut water?", but I'd forgotten the best thing about Almonds.
.. Marzipan!!
Tastes like liquid marzipan!
Mmmmm...

Might not finish the whole bottle today, though, as it's already getting a little bit sickly..
